I realized the other day that my baby girl will be FOUR in just a few months. It blows my mind. Didn't we just bring her home from the hospital the other day? I mean, I know that's not true, but wow. FOUR is so grown-up! Crazy.
We're getting through our days, neither my husband nor I has gotten to workout in the past 5 days. We could have squeezed it in, but there has been a tiny bit of home maintenance stress (refrigerator died, then came back to life (after we'd spent a lot of $$ on a new one, but before it was delivered), then died again, and then we had a 3-day delivery snafu). Starting tonight, I hope to get back on track FOR REALS THIS TIME.
But we've also had the lovely relief of some rain in the area, which we have sorely needed. Yesterday I took a walk in the rain. It wasn't a very athletic walk, just a leisurely one with my umbrella, but what a nice thing to do!! And better than continuing to sit at my desk for 8 full hours. I hope to do that again today.
Life's just busy, but it's really, really good. I hope all of you are having a great week, too.

I was just thinking last week that I hadn't had a cold in a LONG time, and then BAM, one of the kids brought home a cold that really knocked me down for a few days! Today's the first day I've really felt back up to speed (first night I've slept without NyQuil since Saturday). Ugh.
'Tis the season, though, y'all, so: MAMA SAYS WASH YOUR HANDS.
Anyway, I'm back to it today. I have errands to run at my lunch hour, but plan to get in some cardio, somehow, during the day. 10 minute bursts, probably.
I've also decided that my September needs to have a STRONG ABS focus. On my cardio days, I'm also going to do some abdominal workouts. (On strength days, I'll stick with arms/legs.)
Good plan? Good plan.

It's been very busy at work and after work this week, as mine and my kids' activities get going. I knew this was coming. SP success has slowed wayyy down, as in, I took 2 days off from working out, and I might have taken 2 full days off tracking food, too.
I will say that after years and years of tracking food in some way, shape or fashion (either here, or at SouthBeachDiet, or Livestrong, or FitDay.org - yes, i have used them all!) I am pretty darn sick of it.
But onward. I am really going to try hard to get a workout in today and tomorrow. I won't promise Sunday, but we'll say maybe. Sometimes it all just feels like a grind, you know?
Get up every day
Maybe I should take a tap dance class.

My weekly weigh-in today had me UP, again, negating the wonderful success of last week.
No, wait, start over: My weekly weigh-in today was up slightly, but I know that
1) I had a pretty high sodium dinner last night, and
2) I have been working out much more consistently the last few weeks, so it's still okay. I'm still succeeding.
I'm not letting it get me down, I'm really not.
And water bottle, here I come.
